Title : Tabula Itineraria ex illustri Peutingerorum Bibliotheca Quae Auguste Vindelicorum..
Map maker : JANSSONIUS, J..
Date : Amsterdam, 1662.
Size : 7.5 x 159.4 inches. / 19.0 x 405.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Eight sheets making up the famous Peutinger Table, or a Roman road map of the world. The map depicts the imperial roads and posts within the Roman Empire throughout Europe, North Africa and Asia as far as Toprobana (Sri Lanka). These maps, based on the original manuscript, were first popularized by Ortelius in 1598 and became an important part of his great historical atlas. Jansson's version is nearly identical to that of Ortelius. The original parchment document came into the hands of Konrad Peutinger resulting in the common name for the chart.
The Peutinger Map was primarily drawn to show main roads, totaling some 70,000 Roman miles (104,000 km), and to depict features such as staging posts, spas, distances between stages, large rivers, and forests (represented as groups of trees).
The proportions of the Peutinger Map are such that distances east-west are represented at a much larger scale than distances north-south, for example, Rome looks as though it were nearer to Carthage than Naples is to Pompeii. The archetype may well have been on a papyrus roll, designed for carrying around in a capsa [tool box]. As such, its width would be severely limited, whereas its length would not. In the extant map a north-south road tends to appear at only a slightly different angle from an east-west one, and distances are calculated not by the map's scale but by adding up the mileages of successive staging posts. ¤
Condition : Paper slightly age-toned, some marginal water stains and repairs of tears. Mounted on linen, with a cardboard cylindrical cover.
